Looking for a new indoor air quality system to help your family members deal with their allergies or asthma symptoms? While the filter in your air conditioning system is useful for this purpose, it may not be so great at eliminating bacteria, viruses, and other tiny microorganisms from your home’s air. An additional filtration system is helpful, but for those concerned about illnesses and severe symptoms, we usually recommend UV light air purifying systems. Learn more about the power of UV germicidal lights below.
How UV Light Controls Contaminants
Living organisms that are airborne are among the most harmful air pollutants found in homes. While allergens like pollen and pet dander can be troublesome, bacteria and viruses can actually make a person ill. Such airborne contaminants can multiply and make conditions in your home intolerable—even though you cannot see these organisms are present.
UV light kills and sterilizes such contaminants on contact. Small living matter dies immediately when it comes in close contact with UV light. This means they can no longer multiply and it is no longer harmful for you to inhale them.
Having a UV Light System Installed
A UV light system works with your HVAC system to kill and sterilize bacteria, viruses, and even mold spores. These are some of the biggest threats to your indoor air quality, and it stops them from circulating through your HVAC system and the air you breathe as you run it. You need a professional to install it with your heating and air conditioning system and ensure that it is working properly. When installed correctly, all the air that passes by the lights is cleaned, and you don’t have to worry about the UV light having any effect on the people in your home.
